Millions of People Each Year Are Affected by Fires & Floods

It shouldn't occur, yet consistently in the United States, we lose such a large number of lives, homes, and assets to flames and floods. In 2019, firemen reacted to 1.3 million flames and 14 million individuals were affected by flooding! These two fiascos alone caused more than $29 billion in property harm.

Individuals frequently inquire as to why the subject of fire and flood harm isn't examined more since it happens so regularly.

The response is simple! We would rather not really accept that it will happen to us, so some way or another, supernaturally it will not!

It's not extremely logical, yet with the tremendous number of misfortunes every year, it shouldn't astound anybody when it happens to us.
